Flat Head, Oval Head, Frearson Drive, and Slotted Drive
These Silicon Bronze wood screws are the highest quality available. We carry them in a variety of sizes and lengths, and with Flat Heads, Oval Heads, in Frearson Drive, and in Slotted Drive.
What makes them the best?
Full Body: Our wood screws have a shank diameter that is the same size as the outside of the threads. That means your clearance hole will be completely filled, creating a waterproof seal. Full bodied screws are made from a larger wire stock than screws that aren't full bodied, meaning they are stronger when they hold and stronger when you are driving them in.
Cut Threads: The threads are cut, not rolled. Rolled threads have a reduced shank size and drive in with less torque because the threads are sharper. Most other companies produce rolled thread screws and you'll find they twist and break when driving them in, and can leave a compromised fastener in your project without even knowing it.
Cold Pressed Heads: The heads on these screws are cold formed, which hardens them through a process called "work hardening". Experience less stripped screw heads with our cold pressed heads.
Guaranteed 651 Silicon Bronze Alloy: We guarantee that you'll get the correct alloy when you order through us. 651 Silicon Bronze is the ideal alloy for wood screws in your traditional boat building project, therefore it's the only alloy we will supply our wood screws in. The others may be cheaper, but they're likely not the silicon bronze alloy they claim to be.
Traditional boatbuilders know that there is a glut of imposter alloys and bargain wood screws out there on the market, but Fair Wind Fasteners only supplies Silicon Bronze wood screws of the highest marine grade.
Don't forget to add some Screw Lube to help drive these screws home. Less effort in driving, less stripped heads, and protection from corrosion is right here with Fair Wind Screw Lube - Specifically formulated for boat building!
I bought 3 boxes of silicon bronze screws and quality was excellent!!
Made in the usa to boot!
I recently ordered silicon bronze screws and received confirmation almost immediately. I think the order shipped within 24 hours and arrived at my house within a few days. The service was great and really appreciated. I had forgotten to order frearson bits at the same time I ordered the screws so I placed a second order an hour or so later for the bits which required me to pay additional shipping. To my surprise the bits were added to my first order of screws and the extra shipping charge that I paid for the bits was refunded to me. This kind of service and concern for the customer is hard to find these days. I would recommend Fair Wind Fasteners to anyone looking for excellent quality materials and great service.
